Amber Rose’s plastic surgery is absolutely a feminist statement
So she doesn’t want to be a 34H
by Ari Bines
This morning, Amber Rose uploaded a video to her Instagram account of herself, and her soon-to-be surgeon, Garth Fisher, announcing she'd be undergoing surgery to reduce her breasts.
And while it's one thing to have the courage to discuss the idea of something like breast reduction, it's another thing all together to do so while fielding trolls, slamming you for not embracing your "natural tit privilege."
According to her, Amber has been mulling over this decision for 5 months, and even if she hadn't been, it's her fucking body. People attacking her for making decisions about herself and her own well being calls upon the archaic idea women changing any physical aspect of their appearance (even to improve discomfort), will be frowned upon.
No matter what women do or don't do to change their bodies, there's a chance the feminist card will be revoked on site. In many cases, something as simple as wearing too much makeup or sporting claw-shaped tips mean you "don't love the way God made you," or you're "having an identity crisis."
I'm thinking about getting a breast reduction this year ? my boobs are stupid heavy, my back hurts and I can't wear cute lil shirts without a grandma bra. I'm really scared of the lollipop scars tho…. any advice? Are there any ladies out there that are much happier even though you have breast reduction scars? And no I don't have implants so they can't just cut around the nipples ? tell me about ur experiences ?? – muva
Currently, Rose's bra size is a 34 H, and in the video, she admits she hasn't been able to wear spaghetti straps since she was about 10 years old. Dr. Fisher, Amber's doctor, says "She'll be able to have more freedom and be able to run around and wear t-shirts." I can't say that doesn't take a weight off of a girl's shoulders.
"We're going to get her back to eleven years old," he says, and according to him, "She's getting the most gorgeous breasts."
We can't wait to see you wild and free, Muva!
